The Rapper

Series 2 - Episode 4 The Rapper



The route for the Olympic torch relay is in chaos because the deliverance team has pledged the impossible and the nonsensical, that the torch “will be within the reach of 95 per cent of the population”. The solution? Alter the geography of Britain, at least theoretically, so now, announces infrastructure head Graham Hitchins, pointing to a map: “I’ve moved Nottingham a lot closer to Sheffield.”

The clueless pinheads at PR company Perfect Curve, meanwhile, have dreamed up a rap song to accompany a planned Olympics sexual health campaign, which results in an excruciating meeting between resolutely non-hip deliverance boss Ian and a rapper. It’s a great final episode, a zinger at the end of a too-brief series.


Siobhan and the Olympic Deliverance team help to organise a major sexual health campaign, complete with a rap song that could upset the Catholic competitors. Spoof documentary, starring Hugh Bonneville and Jessica Hynes. Narrated by David Tennant.
